Individual Therapy for Adults and Adolescents

Clinical Services

The Wisemind Centre is committed to clinical excellence and compassionate delivery of psychological treatments supported by empirical research.
We offer treatment primarily in three modalities: individual, group, and online.

Individual Therapy for Adults and Adolescents

In individual therapy, we work with our clients to develop specific goals they want to achieve at the outset of therapy. By conducting in-depth assessment of our clients’ experience, we provide tailor-made treatments to meet their individual needs. Our goals are to help our clients gain insights to their problems and find solutions to change the thoughts, feelings and behaviors they want to change. Our ultimate goal is to help our clients become their own therapist by teaching them adaptive coping and interaction skills. We balance this change-based approach in therapy with an acceptance-approach by teaching our clients how to acknowledge what is factual in their lives. We believe that by doing so, clients will have a better chance of improving their quality of life, increasing a sense of mastery in managing difficult emotions, building a life worth living, and thriving at home, school, work place, and in their community.
